mitt romney last thursday in defiance, ohio, about an hour away from toledo. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america. i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it's fair, america will win. >> sounds terrible, but it's false. did you hear that, false, what he just said. chrysler which was bought by fiat said it's not taking any jobs from ohioans, it's adding jobs. also plans on resuming jeep production in china for chinese drivers. in other words, overseas production, overseas sales. not moving jobs from the united states to china. then comes this whopper of a romney ad. customarily when one of the campaigns launch a commercial, they send us press releases and video. not this one. this started running unannounced in ohio and suggests again that jobs are moving to china. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact-checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a
could almost be said of mitt romney and his new tv ads in ohio about who would do more nor the auto industry. you see the price of desperation here. >>> and the campaign's response to the universal criticism they just keep running it. >>> also, did climate change have something to do with hurricane sandy in freak storms happen all the time but this is precisely the kind ever event that scientists have been predicting to us for years. >>> and why would eisenhower endorse a democrat for president? susan eisenhower comes here to talk about it. >>> and does anyone really have a grip on who mitt romney is? this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, with one week before the election, remember that? we've got lots of new poll numbers in the presidential race. let's go to the "hardball" scoreboard. we start in florida where a new cnn poll has mitt romney leading by one point, but a new ppp poll from florida has president obama up by one point. 49%, 50%. in ohio a new pp p poll has the president leading by four, 51%, 47%. new hampshire, a small state that may play a big role on el
of people in sandy's path. romney did have events scheduled today in ohio but now he's telling the state not only to support the east coast during the storm but also to support the entire country by electing him as president. if we did have a romney presidency, disaster relief could be very different. during a primary debate earlier this season, romney seemed to be absolutely in favor of shutting fema down. now that we are in the middle of a natural disaster, he says no. he wouldn't shut it down. he would just send more power to the states. fema is already bracing for relief efforts once hurricane sandy clears out. more than 1500 staff are positioned along the east coast to help with search and rescue and logistical support. thankfully for those on the east coast, fema has nearly $8 billion available for disaster relief. but during last year's budget deal paul ryan designed a bill that would have gotten rid of some emergency funding. he instead wanted money to go toward the military. that bill passed the house wi
of jeep outsourcing to china, chrysler itself refuted romney's lie. the truth, jeep is adding jobs in ohio. mitt romney on ohio jobs, wrong then -- >> let detroit go bankrupt -- >> -- dishonest now. >> the obama campaign arranged for president clinton to make stops in minnesota, iowa, colorado, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and wisconsin all before this race is over. we've got a new "washington post"/abc tracking poll to show you likely voters nationwide. this is the story. another poll telling us the same thing. this race is deadlocked nationally. in florida, a cnn/orc poll has romney up a point. of course, that's within the margin of error. they are tied there. in north carolina where democrats held their convention last month has it tied 45%-45%. you can e-mail me at "waytooearly and let me know what you're seeing outside your window this morning. tell me about the storm and how you're dealing with sandy. at the top of the hour with "morning joe," much more on the fallout. the storm impacting the east coast for what could be days and weeks to come. and when we come back here, we'll che
never did anything this corrupt. >> sean: let me ask you this. ohio romney has pulled into a 2-point lead. michigan is dead even. they're sending bill clinton to minnesota, joe biden to pennsylvania. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e. there could be a surprise state like pennsylvania or illinois. >> sean: good to see you, ann coulter. when we come back, we continue to track the monster storm sandy. over a million and a half people are out of power and new york is being flooded. lower manhattan and the new york governor's office is reporting storm-related deaths. we have a live report coming up next, and then later, this storm is int

can hold that there's no way romney can win. >> it looks like romney will take ohio, florida and virginia. >> that's a dream. >> if he does that and he takes colorado too and iowa, all of those things are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election. romney only needs 269 to win. in one of those and it could happen, if you get a 269 it goes to the house and they line up state by state and they win because of all the states. one small point romney only needs 269 to get over the finish line. i think that he is going to get there. >> i think that's your wish there. >> thank you guys are coming in. >>> coming up the devastation hits one of the colleagues hard. the affects that it is having on a hometown. would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial camp
, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign video before hand and a few remarks. >> a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night and the storm goes on. i have had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they've talked about a lot of people having a hard time. you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people as a result of one or two people taking an effort. >> romney declared he would send the boxes of rice krispies and canned goods in a truck to new jersey. asked if romney would be visiting the state himself, new jersey governor chris christie dismissed the idea with a large dose of disdain. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less
relief, with mitt romney in ohio collecting canned foods and bottled water, and the president making a quick afternoon visit to red cross headquarters in washington. >> the most important message i have for them is that america is is with you. we are standing behind you, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. >> ifill: romney also spoke of the need to help storm victims. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> ifill: the romney campaign announced he will resume campaigning tomorrow. the president will remain off the trail through wednesday. he spent most of today at the white house offering federal support to officials in the affected areas. among them, new jersey's republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter who nevertheless heaped praise on the president. >> i have to say thed administration, the president himself, and people a administrator craig few gate have been outstanding with us so far. we have a
romney also canceled rallying today, but he did attend an event in ohio. his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> i've had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people aat dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased things these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response to the storm outstanding, governor chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now peo
romney is about to kick off a disaster relief event in ohio. he and paul ryan have scrapped official campaign stops in the wake of the storm. the governor asking people in iowa last night to help and remember those affected up and down the eastern seaboard. >> american red cross is, of course, accepting donations and if you have a little extra you can send off to the american red cross, join us in doing that and make sure we do our very best to help those that are being impacted by the storm. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> great advice at this time of need. joining me now is john spiteser, communications director for the republican national committee. it's good to see you this morning and mitt romney is not going have any official stops today. one thing i do want to play for everybody, the comment played a few minutes ago by new jersey governor chris christie about the election next week. we are down to the pivotal days left. >> this administration at the moment could give a damn less about election day. >> all right. if you give a damn -- i know chris christie said
. >> that was governor romney this afternoon at a storm relief event in ohio. what can be described as a tone downed campaign event, he collected items for those hit in new jersey. the vice president set out two events in ohio. having ravaged the east coast, sandy is striking the buckeye state. nearly a quarter of homes and businesses are without power from the high winds and snow in the northeast corner of the state. with only a week until election day, romney's plan to stay in ohio and cam faine today. it's close. the latest real clear politics polling average gives the president a less than two--point lead over romney around five or six points before the first debate. there are serious concerns about disruptions to election day because of sandy's impact on key states like ohio and virginia. legally he the presidential cam taken could be postponed. states have the power to set their own rules for elections but can't change date for a presidentleal election on their own. it seems unlikely that will happen. in the guest spot today washington course dents for the cleveland plain dealer sabrina eaton.
in ohio with vice president biden. the republican challenger mitt romney cancelled one of three campaign events on his schedule today. he did still address crowds in ohio and davenport, iowa. he held a town hall with voters in ohio by teleconference. but now romney's slate of events for tomorrow has been cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going
the romney event in ohio and have to package it, used clothes they have to clean, they can't go directly to victims what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. it does seem like a thinly veiled -- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and thin line. it's easier from a political perspective from president obama because he goes about the duties of being president hp he called chris christie, mike bloomberg, cory booker, governor cuomo making sure he knows everything going on the ground, making sure federal assistance gets where it's needed. it's much harder for mitt romney in that he can't really campaign and yet, he doesn't want to totally disappear and crede the last five days of television coverage. it's still the president of the united states acting like the president of the united states. it's when -- it's how you get into situations like we saw in ohio to
's energy mix. let's go. jenna: fox news alert. joining mitt romney in ohio where he is talking a little bit about hurricane relief. he was talking a moment ago what happened during hurricane katrina and some folks being moved from there from louisiana to massachusetts. let's listen to the governor. >> randy owen from alabama to be here. [applause] he's an extraordinary guy. he will probably tell you the story about storms, tornado actually that hit his county in alabama and described why it is that he is here. we appreciate the fact that he is agreed to come entertain and bring people in who have in turn brought in goods as their cover charge if you will to be here this morning. thank you for your help and your generosity. by the way if you have a little extra, if you have more canned goods, bring them along to our victory centers that are open. but also if you can write a check to american red cross, that is welcome as well. we're looking for all the help we can get for all the families in need. thank you for your generosity. thank you for your support. i will go to work here at the table.
a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get rid of these gop people that are having a problem with the government you give them a government job with fair wages and good pay, and all of a sudden 90% of them won't have a problem with the government. >> exactly. let's go to jones in alabama. >> caller: how are you doing chris? >> good. >> caller: this thing about privatizing fema that means they have a friend in the private sector that can go in and buy your home
romney continues to do some campaigning. he held a townhall in ohio aboard his plane this afternoon. i'm joined again by chris lehane, a democratic strategist, a crisis communications expert. we did talk a little bit about what a challenger should do in light of this. i'm actually -- i want to go back to something else we began to talk about, which is in 2000 when al gore won the popular vote, but apparently lost -- at least one supreme court justice, but the question was at what point do you give up the ship. >> uh-huh. >> jennifer: you were inside those conversations, and would you have advise if we come down to an election that is so close like that. >> yeah. to me one of the critical issues is we had to deal with this the morning of the election, right? which is a lot of people didn't realize that al gore actually had won the popular vote. there was this impression that bush had actually won, when any fact gore had won the popular vote. and to me that was one of the lessons or takeaways is, the importance of immediately getting out there and framing what this
it if someone could that done that, yesterday. >> mr. clinton lives outside of new york city. mr. romney appeared in ohio today staying away from overt campaigning during an appearance in a storm relief center. >> i appreciate your generosity. it's the american way to give to people in need. >> mr. romney said he spoke with some of the governors and. >> you can count on abc 7 for coverage of the storm, we'll have live updates tonight on oab 7 news at 5:00 and 6:00. world news will have live team coverage, then tonight at 10:00 abc news will air a special on super storm sandy. >> coming up on abc 7 news at 4:00 you tube buzzing with storm clips from that storm. >> an oakland raider makes a visit to play catch to give them important advice about the future. >> and eastern sky shows lots of blue. clouds thickening overnight. what does that mean for the giants parade? i'll have the forecast coming up. >> this is a northbound traffic heading into marin. stay with us. abc news at 4:00 is back in a mome >>> taking you back live to new york city. just next to the high rise, you can see that brok

even in so many polls. now even the state of ohio that's true which we hadn't seen romney lead in ohio at all. now we see rasmussen putting him up in ohio. how does that play historically when you have an election this close, how does that play tuesday? is it about ground game or those late deciders that go into the polling box and decide incumbent or challenger? >> it's really all about both. look, on the late deciding, two things. first we don't have many on the left. i wondered how any people could be decide. megyn: people who don't like the choices. they decide when they are in the polling place. that's what i believe. >> i met some of them. when i question them about their views they are almost always fiscal conservatives and social issued libertarians therefore they feel like they don't fit in either party. but they have to make a choice even if the choice is not to vote or skip the presidential race. 1% of the people go into the polls and skip the presidential contest. they vote for shaffer or congress but they don't vote for president. megyn: how is a storm likely to play. most
